We had such an amazing time on this tour to Pollopel Island where Bannerman Castle is! The boat ride was pleasant down the Hudson River and the information given to us by our guide was fantastic. We really feel like we learned a lot about this rally beautiful little known gem in upstate New York. We found the island to be stunning as were the remnants of the military surplus storage building and the residence. We were there Halloween weekend 2020 and even on a rainy, foggy, windy day it was very beautiful and added to the eery elements of the ruins. I highly recommend this tour it was one of the best things we did on our weekend getaway to the area!

I am from the area and remember and watched the fire on the Bannerman’s Island back in 1969. Spending all my life here I never got a chances to go on the tours when they started, so this was special for me. learning more about the island and the family was great. Thank you.

It was well worth it. Interesting part of American history . The tour guide Abby was extremely informative , passionate , articulate and knew her history of Bannerman inside and out . I thought she was in college or a grad student and the most amazing thing was that she was 14 years old and in high school! A remarkable young woman passionate about history . The story begins Bannerman Island was moving and the scenery was beautiful . Ans we saw a very large adult bald eagle hovering overhead .
